Dear Colleague,

The Sixth Congress of the International Society for Theoretical 
Chemical Physics (ISTCP-VI) (http://www.chem.ubc.ca/istcp6) will be 
held on July 19-24, 2008 in the beautiful campus of the University 
of British Columbia (UBC) at Vancouver, BC, Canada. The history of 
ISTCP and its Congresses is available at the following link: 
http://www.chem.ubc.ca/istcp6/ISTCPstory.htm.

Held every three years, ISTCP Congresses continue the tradition of 
showcasing the achievements and advances in all areas of theoretical 
chemical physics, with special emphasis on the interaction between 
experimental and theoretical physical chemistry, chemical physics, 
and materials and life sciences. The scope of ISTCP-VI will cover a 
broad range of topics that include Biophysical/Medical Simulations, 
Statistical Mechanics, Quantum Chemistry, Density-Functional Theory, 
Coupled Clusters, Quantum Monte Carlo, Quantum/Classical Dynamics, 
Nanosystems, Coherent Control, Ultra-cold Chemistry, AttoScience, 
and Novel Materials.

As usual, the proceedings of the Congress will be published in the 
International Journal of Quantum Chemistry (IJQC) and Progress in 
Theoretical Chemistry and Physics (PTCP). Research papers will 
appear in IJQC (Wiley) while review papers will appear in PTCP 
(a book series published by Springer).

With extensive advertising all over the world, we anticipate the 
total number of participants to ISTCP-VI to reach 250. This will 
definitely be a wonderful opportunity to know the latest cutting-
edge advances in theoretical chemical physics and to network with 
your colleagues worldwide. 

It is our great pleasure to invite you to join us for a five-day 
scientific fest at UBC during ISTCP-VI.

Several members of the Honorary Board of Directors of ISTCP (which 
includes 4 Nobel Laureates and 4 Wolf Prize Awardees) have expressed 
their intention to attend the Congress.

With best wishes,

The ISTCP-VI Executive Committee
Alex Wang (Chair, UBC, Canada)
Erkki J. Brandas (Co-chair, President of ISTCP, Sweden)
Jean Maruani (Co-chair, France)

About Vancouver

Vancouver is the largest city in Western Canada, located at the south-
western corner of the province of British Columbia. Situated between 
the north-shore and coastal mountains and the edge of the Pacific 
ocean, Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in North America, 
and was recently ranked as "the world's most desirable place to live" 
in a survey of 127 cities performed by the Intelligence Unit of the 
magazine The Economist. It is also the hosting city of the 2010 Olympic 
Winter Games. The vibrant downtown core offers all the amenities of 
an international destination - from hundreds of restaurants and clubs 
through countless parks and recreation facilities to world-class 
sporting and entertainment events (including the Vancouver Symphony 
Orchestra and the Canucks - the city's major league hockey team). 
Vancouver's natural surroundings offer limitless opportunities for 
outdoor pursuits, such as hiking and mountain biking in the Spring 
and Summer, and skiing at nearby Whistler-Blackcomb resort in Winter. 
We invite you to explore Vancouver and Beautiful British Columbia at 
the following web sites:
